AquaMaxx

AquaMaxx Phosphate Out Pro is a high capacity granular ferric oxide adsorptive filter media that removes phosphate from aquarium water. Phosphate is a fuel for algae growth and can also inhibit a coral`s ability to utilize calcium in water. Phosphate Out does not leach phosphate back into aquarium water after it has been absorbed by the media.

For best results, use AquaMaxx Phosphate Out inside a canister, hang-on back or other aquarium filtration system. Using a filter media bag is strongly recommended.

Phosphate Out can also be used in fluidized (up-flow) media reactors. A ball valve is required to regulate a slow flow rate through the filter to prevent granules from becoming pulverized.

Phosphate Out Pro will hold up to twice the amount of phosphate when compared to standard granular ferric oxide. As with all phosphate removal media, it will have an affect on your alkalinity levels so be sure to test your water regularly.

1/4 gallon = 1 quart = 4 cups of media

Dosage

  • Rinse before use.
  • Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup per 50 gallons for saltwater aquariums.
  • Test phosphate levels and replace media when levels begin to rise (approximately every 3-6 months).

Gfo

Love the high capacity gfo. Only use half of what you would with regular gfo. I have to say it lasts twice as long and worth every penny. I totally recommend to anyone who has large reef or fish only aquariums.

great value

This is one of the best high capacity GFO products i've used. It has VERY low dust; I don't even rinse it. I just put a small sock under the outflow of my TLF 550 reactor for a day or two. I'd say this product is comparable to the BRS high capacity and it's cheaper. The AquaMaxx can also be regenerated without much loss.
